I uses the ones that mount on the face of the end beam. I cut off the stub or sprue, drill it and tap it for a 4-40 bolt. Make sure the bolt is not so log that it will interfer with the link. Treat them with blacken it then sofisticated finishes rust and bolt them to the end beam or sill. I make my own links out of copper or brass wire bent and soldered.
I don't do much switching. I think L and P are the way to go. They will work with any other L and P by making a custom link if needed. Look great and you can make your own.
But backing up thru a curve can be a problem.
